As he put an arm around Rochelle, she replied: “You always say that when I am on the show, and I’ve told you not to do that.
Eamonn explained: “Ruth has other things to do but Rochelle and I are pairing up.”
“I always say we don’t have to change the props in here, the don’t need to change the mugs.”
Rochelle joked: “I am Mrs. Holmes for the day.”
Eamonn and Rochelle went on to say they would be celebrating leap year birthdays on today’s show as it was February 28.
They also spoke to a couple who had been trapped in a Tenerife hotel due to a coronavirus threat.

The two were also the main hosts over Christmas when Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield went on their Christmas holidays.
This isn’t the only show Ruth presents, along with her duties on This Morning with her husband, she is a regular panelist on Loose Women.
Some of This Morning’s hosts have included stand-in and guest stints from Rylan Clark-Neal, Ore Oduba, and Amanda Holden, among many others over the years.
Later in the show, Eamonn and Rochelle turned their attention to coronavirus and what viewers can do to prevent the virus spreading.
